It was allegedly Winston Churchill (or Abba Eban) who once said that the Americans would get it right after they had tried all the other options.

This seems to be the motivation behind Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma stating that "the ANC will do better in 2019". Quite frankly, the country can’t wait for her to fiddle while SA burns.

The country has been bled to death by the sheer incompetence, maladministration, corruption and self-indulgence of the ANC. There is no ANC candle in the wind. It has been thoroughly extinguished and it has all been its own doing.

Cyril Ramaphosa and Dlamini-Zuma have not made one utterance about the pandemic of corruption, state capture, indeed criminality of the Zuma regime. They plead ignorance or, worse still, acceptance. I defy either of these two accomplices (being silent members of the ANC renders them all accomplices to the situation our country finds itself in) to show where they have said or done anything about the corruption and malfeasance of the ANC government. I have never heard Dlamini-Zuma sing a single note, let alone demonstrate one action.

The ANC cannot be fixed. It is broken morally, spiritually and intellectually. For SA to wait for 2019 on the political front is the same as listening to Allister Coetzee telling us that the Springboks will soon be a winning team again.

SA deserves so much better. The time is ripe for change in government from top to bottom. Ditto the Springbok coaching cabal.
